Remember Me: Displaced Children of the Holocaust

Between 1933 and 1945, millions of children were displaced as a result of Nazi persecution. Now, more than 65 years later, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is using postwar photos and the power of the online community to find out what happened to these children.

You can help by going to Remember Me to browse through some 1,100 photos of displaced children and share them with your family and friends.
Who knows, you might even hold a clue that could identify a child, reunite relatives, or piece together a wartime or postwar experience.

The more people who see the photos, the greater the chance of identifying these children and raising awareness about the experiences of the most vulnerable victims of war and genocide.

Please share this with your family & friends on Facebook & Twitter. Thank you.
